Substance: Uses brain research to help adults deal with children, and children to help themselves, by understanding what the child's brain is doing (or not doing) at different stages of development.
NOTE: Originally read a copy borrowed from local library in 2011. ( )

Some great practical tips on how to redirect or reinforce behaviours in a caring, strengthening way. And a lot of concepts pitched directly to engage with children, so be prepared to read it once for yourself then talk through the relevant sections with your child as they encounter them. ( )

A very down-to-earth and easy to follow parenting guide. ( )

This book has both a theory of how to help children manage their emotions and concrete suggestions for how to put it into practice. My only hesitation is that it's not clear which pieces of cited research from 2011 have survived the replication crisis. ( )
  jyasskin | Jun 16, 2020 |
I don't see it as a "must read" as a parent. The advice is on par with the other parenting books out there and it will probably help a bit to read it if only to make sure the concepts get cemented into the back of your mind.

I hate how it drags a lot, repeats the same points & takes the already flawed "divided brain" metaphor and beats it into the ground. You won't go 3 sentences without seeing the words "left brain, right brain, up brain, down brain, completeness etc". It's tiring, annoying and doesn't do nearly as much to "simplify things" for the reader as the authors hoped. It gets confusing quick and you end up ignoring the metaphor altogether. ( )
